I stopped at the LGS a few days back hoping to find a traded in 10-22 to replace the melted one. Literally NOTHING used on the rack but 5-6 various flavor/color scheme 10-22's priced from $299-370(ish).
Not for my needs. I'll pull something out of hiding and use what I already have. The one that melted cost $169 including tax.

I bought one last summer, in a pawn shop, with a walnut stock, older and in very good shape for $265 out the door. Apparently the new ones are in the $300 or more range.

I was in the local Scheels on Monday and their price on a new 10/22 carbine with the wood stock was $299 and they had 1 Deluxe Sporter for $399.

Prices sure have gone crazy on them. I got the SS, threaded, polymer stock, takedown version for just over $300 about 4 years ago. I'm seeing the same model for $600ish today when I look.

Not long after the pandemic started it seems 10/22 prices shot up to MSRP ( or more ) about everywhere …. Especially on Gun Broker.

Even basic stock birch or polymer stocked rifles are bringing close to $300 USED.

Heck, a local pawn shop musta bought a collection of Remington Model 77s and Nylon 66s. They priced the most common brown ones at $650 and a real nice 66 in black and chrome at $900. I think they’re all gone except the black and chrome one.

My pair of 10/22 AW's cost me approx. $165 each. Thinking I was making about 20 bucks an hour when I bought them.
I just heard the 2023 pay scale for a job I used to do at a place I used to work. My level there now, would have me making about 40. About a days pay then & now for a 10/22.

I paid over $12 for an ordinary roast beef sandwich in a town that houses very rich people... And, I can't seem to get outta my local Burger King for less than $11 for a Whopper and small fries.... (no drink).

As long as we PAY the money, the prices will continue to rise.... I try my best to buy only what I really need (and that doesn't include guns or ammo anymore).

Ans.: YES.... $300+

I guess the question is, what hasn't skyrocketed in price? Anything with labor and raw materials of a firearm, along with increased costs just to do business would increase things substantially. Seems like we are all adjusting just as planned.

Wow! Way back when I was a young hippie gun guy, I bought my first firearm, a used Ruger 10-22 in perfect condition from a locksmith that got it for his daughter, but she didn't take to the shooting sports and I bought the little rifle for $50 cash and carry including two of the very hard to find extra 10 rd magazines! 10-22s were everywhere, new and used and cheap! Of course, gas was .22 cents a gallon with green stamps and McDonalds was priced well below .25 cents for most everything... Remington Nylon 66s were selling for about $50 bucks new! Remington "Golden Bullets" 22 ammo was $5 bucks a brick (for years!)... I bought a VW hippie van for under $1,200. new (needed to haul around the newly invented and VERY friendly hippie girls!) The power of the US dollar has shrunk spectacularly during my years on the planet...

You did get a screaming deal on that gun then, that's 10-15 year old pricing.

Otherwise, there might be a slight difference in this country in many categories, than there was 4 years ago...ya think?

I don't know, a 10/22, even with they way they're built today, $300 doesn't sound that bad, considering. It's still one of the most popular and most modified .22 rifles out there, I'm surprised it's not a little more actually.

I do miss the ones with metal parts though.

Yeah, $300 doesn’t buy much in the firearms market anymore. A 10-22 for $300 seems about right nowadays. The LGS here only has 2 guns at $300 or less: a used plain barrel Winchester 1200 pump at $300. Ruger Wranglers for $219.

I saw a like new 10-22 synthetic stock on the used gun rack at another shop priced @ $269. I resisted the urge to ask what it took to carry it out today.

A local shop has a new 10/22 carbine with $275.00 on the tag. It's been sitting there for a long time, but it's really not out of line with what most places around here have them priced at.
